What a difference a year makes. Retro meme!

Just call you Nathaniel Braden?

Mmm, thunderstorms. They are fun to watch, and I once slept through a huge one at summer camp. All of my wimpy bunkmates were amazed that I wasn't awake and freaking out along with them.
About Ayn Rand, do you like her in a, "she's so hot" way or with a cool intellectual detachment?

Re: Just call you Nathaniel Braden?

No, just call me Bob. Yes, I love watching thunderstorms. Once I watched it lightning in April during a snowstorm. The flying snow was coming down hard and the lightning bolts diffused by the snow crystals looked vivid purple.

Okay, as for the Ayn Rand thing, I don't want to be Nathaniel Branden, but I can see where he was coming from. I must confess, her writing does make me hot to read some of it.
